A computer program that gives the theroetical effects of an impact from an asteroid. Very interesting..and frightening.

The history of Earth's encounters with asteroids remains largely mysterious to scientists. They can't even agree whether a huge space rock that hit Mexico's Yucatan Penninsula 65 million years ago killed off the dinosaurs or not.

Nor can astronomers say when the next catastrophic impact will occur. They only know that it will happen, sooner or later."

Nice link. It's fun to play with the measurements to see how big a crater could get.
